As you rightly comment, the emptiness of space is boggling. Much more so, than reading coverage of the Oscars Many thanks! Depends on the resolution. Someone please check my math. Thank you, Josh, for designing this experiment, your kinetic metaphor works very well! Thank you. Old browser maybe? Hi, just wanted to thank you for this wonder. Thank you again!

Pretty cool! I liked the comments, and holding down the scroll bar makes you understand just how much space there is…really, if it automatically scrolled to the next planet, well, you might as well get a bedroom solar system mobile. The original Whole Earth Catalog had projects teachers could do to help their students understand space and the solar system; use a roll of toilet paper and mark the planets on it; find household items like grapefruit and raisins to be planets and place them in a field, or use homemade signs along a road — sometimes your solar system stretches for miles!
I did a roadside one when my kids were in school learning about the solar system. Now I want to do one of an atom! Many thanks, this was a blast.

Had a singularly challenging, empty day, feeling like nothing. Scrolling all the way through this gave me perspective. If this is the pattern, then it stands to reason that experiences of emptiness in the spirit holds significance as well. The emptiness gives weight to what IS there, making it significant. Very nice work. Thanks for the fix!

I used the hidden y overflow option. Thanks for a absolutely superb communication of an essentially incommunicable understanding.
Kudos by the parsec. Very impressive! Just a thought. This is great! I actually had a similar idea to the rearview mirror that it would be nice to keep things in a perspective view of some kind until they would disappear anyway. What came to mind for me was putting the whole trip more on the y axis than the x axis,.. Maybe a dual-viewport set of forward-looking and backward looking views would further aid perspective awareness. In Firefox 29 Aurora only browser tested , I have vertical scroll bars, in the event the fix you mentioned in a comment should already be in effect.
Seconding all the adoring comments. I scrolled all the way by hand on ipad no automation visible, nor any scale numbers unfortunately — and it felt like a real achievement to get to the end. Now… to clean the grease from the screen…. Beautiful work, very meticulously made. This is a great applet and I sent it out to a group of middle school science teachers to hopefully explore with their students.
That said, I have a question, and I mean no disrespect. Would it be much more difficult to replace the larger planets with actual images? It would be nice, after all that scrolling, to get a 2D picture of Jupiter rather than an orange circle. Anyway, thanks for the page! Outstanding job, Josh! Hi, can i duplicate the page to do a french translation. I respect your work and your copyright and i will explain that is your original idea and your property.
Hey man, great job. The ruler gives a much clearer sense of distance. Just a tip: would be better if the comments just appeared static momentarily perhaps at the top below the symbols instead of passing by. Other than that, great stuff. Loved it, Josh.
Quite an abbreviated trip! So, size is relative. The following example has shown up in many places, one being on physics. So much space Everywhere. Thanks for putting your map out in cyber space! Great work! I was thinking about what would be a good model to show the scale of the universe in the web just two days ago. The thought came up right after I woke up and realized that I had probably been re-living in a dream an actual day in in high school when we imagined a model.
In our model, the pixel was the head of a head pin located in the middle of our school patio. For me it was an aha moment. Though I once believed investing in space was like investing in our future for knowledge and expansion, eye-opening exhibits like this reinforce what I now believe— the universe is just too big for exploration. Pretty disappointed in mankind that almost 50 years from landing on the moon that are crowning space-related achievements are getting benefits from man-made satellites ie gps , stationary telescopes ie Hubble , and moving telescopes probes— but I am excited about New Horizons approaching Pluto next year.
Things are too far so focus in subjects that affect us more like medicine. I did something a whole lot like this in quitethehike.

And I like the info boxes. Hey Josh, That was one long trip you took us on. I knew there was a lot of nothing out there, but you really gave me some proper perspective on the true size of things. Thank you very much for this map. Totally worth it! No words to describe the amazing job you made here. It really was, for me, a spiritual journey; not for religious reasons. You rock! So for instance, holding the right arrow leaving the sun, you arrive at Mercury after 3 minutes 12 seconds.
Still, it would make you stop and realize the crazy scale.
Very nice. Strikes me though a single 32 bit integer can count the km well past Uranus. So your 64 bit computer is pretty darned big on the inside too. A single word can count well more integers than the km to Pluto we still love you! Suggest checking your Moon Pixel show, I am getting the last comment section over printed with another message.
Hell on Venus
The earth being about light seconds from the sun, etc…. There should be a PixelMoon Fountation for the enhancement of the project, like: add right-click pop-up explanations about bodies encountered, 3d representations, meteors position remember the ISON crazyness some time ago?

Love this work! Also liked your very quotable commentary on nothingness one of my favorite topics. It is like those occasional and sometimes humors road signs I often see when driving along the interstate.
